Chevron pattern painted wall

Blog world is full of inspirations for the chevron wall. I love this pattern which has gotten very popular in the recent years. Though i was keen on using this pattern on one of the walls, I wasnt sure about doing the same on a huge wall. So picked the hallway near master bedroom which is a smaller wall. We had already painted this with Kelly Moore's Navajo White.

This turned out to be a quick sunday afternoon makeover which was finished in 3-4 hours. This is how it looks after.


Deriving the numbers for the pattern and taping took longer. Once painters tape was taped, painting was pretty quick. Here is how I arrived at the width and length of the pattern

Divide the width of the wall by number of zigzags you want. 75" / 3 ( I wanted three) = 25"
Divide the height of the wall by number of zigzags you want. 105"/15 (I wasnt looking for bigger pattern ) = 7"



Once you have the numbers start taping in the zigzag pattern. Run you finger thru the edge of the tape to ensure there is no gap. Also to ensure that paint doesn't bleed thru, paint with the base color paint on the edge of the painters tape. 

Painted every other line using the different paint. It is a custom color matched using behr paint from Homedepot. Remove the blue tape when the paint is not completely dried. Here is another picture during painting and after. I couldn't find the one after the base paint.


Stand back and enjoy the chevron painted wall. I love how it turned out with crisp lines.

Here is the full view of the wall



Hope you like it!! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Bharati, Hats off to you....I do love the chevron but did not gather enough confidence that I could do it so never tried. So ended up with straight lines.....:-).

  4. Excellent job! Amazing too how it almost gives a 3-D effect. Have done stripes (vertical plus horizontal ones) and even a multi-colour blocked wall (six colours consisting of 30 blocks), so can relate to getting the pattern and taping just right. As for the painting of it, I find it to be the quickest part. ☺ -Brenda-
    P.S: For sharp definition of lines/edges I use a brush and while still wet blend it in using a sponge roller sleeve to complete the painting process.
